MR. AND MRS. W. S. F. TATUM. Hattiesburg. Miss. 



As palm-grove's shade upon the desert's glare, 
Or cooling draught unto the thirsty soul — 

Yea, like the soothing touch of gentle hands 
Is thy spirit and life Woman's College. 

Haven where pure thought 

Into good deed is wrought. 
And where love's fire is caught— 

Temple of knowledge. 

For him whose instrumental bounty given 

Did pave the royal road which thou hast come 

Our hearts are rich with kindly gratitude. 
To our good friend Mr. W. S. F. Tatum 



And above all to-day 

Praise be to God we say 
For that He gave thee sway, 

Fair Woman's College.

PRES. JOHN L. JOHNSON, Jr., M. E. 



Teacher for years of Modern Lang-uage in Mississippi College, where he did an inestimable 
work for young men. 

He came to our Woman's College in the fall of 1912, after prayer and council. 

The matter of choice was put upon him by the providential hand of God, and like Moses, 
Daniel and Solomon, he chose to do what we find to be the will of God, and he stands at the 
head of our young college. What tremendous issues in this wise choice! His choice shall de- 
termine the destiny of scores of girls in this great country of ours. 

He is brave, courageous, giving his young life to bless the homes and lives of hundreds. 
His heart is in his work with his faith in God. 

He began at the bottom with the College and is proving himself a builder, building 
characters into great structures of usefulness. 

B. S. University of Mississippi; M. A. Mississippi College; Tutor Mathematics University 
of Mississippi; President of Hearn Academy; Superintendent of Jackson, Georgia Public Schools; 
President of Hillman College; Student in Berlin and Paris; Professor of Modern Languages in 
Mississippi College; President Mississippi Woman's College. 




MRS. MAE WALLER BATSON 



Mrs. Batson is the beloved Lad\- Principal and she is both of the words making up the 
title in the highest degree. Educated at Hillman College she had preserved a fondness for 
college girls and college life and when the denomination established the college, she determined 
to devote her life there to the care of girls. How well she has succeeded during session, let all 
the girls tell. Decided and firm in her manner she brooks no disobedience and yet every girl loves 
her and obeys willingly. No one could look more earnestly and closely after the best interests 
of the girls and no one could bring to such a task more culture, zeal, equipment and burning 
desire to make the very best out of every girl entrusted to her care. In summing up the assets 
of the Woman's College, Mrs. Batson is among the most valuable. 





MISS MITTIE L. MORRIS 



Miss Morris is a graduate of Blue Mountain College and 
she also has done much post graduate work. In her own de- 
partment of Latin and also in the English department in which 
she assists, Miss Morris is noted for insisting on thorough con- 
scientious work and not being satisfied with anything short of 
it. To the girls in her class, Julius Csesar, Horace and Tacitus 
are not myths but living, breathing personages that have to be 
reckoned with daily. 



MISS ALICE LEA 



Miss Lea is an honor graduate of the L L & C. Her 
specialty is Mathematics— that is during school hours— and she 
lives in a continual atmosphere of equations, theorems, hypo- 
thesis,' cosines and corollaries. In spite of this she is angular 
neither mentally nor physically but is extremely popular with 
students and teachers. 




PROF. O. P. ESTES 



Prof. Estes is a B. A. gi-aduate of Mississippi College. 
He is a man of rare versatility as in addition to conducting the 
History and Bible departments, he leads the congregational 
singing, supervises athletics and is the Grand High Mogul of 
the truck garden. As yet he is unmarried but there are signs 
that such a reproach can not be long cast upon hin. 






MISS OTTA J. STEPHENS 



Miss Stephens, the Director of the Music Department is 
a gi-aduate of the Christian College of Columbia, Mo. and a con- 
servatory student for years in New York and Boston. Her high 
order of musical talent' pure soprano voice and many graces of 
disposition have endeared her to all. 



MISS GERTRUDE CHASE 



Miss Chase, who heads the Piano Department comes to 
us from the Chase Conservatory of Columbus, Ga. She is one 
of the quartette of "Georgia Peaches" in the college. Miss 
Chase possesses splendid talent as a teacher while her lively, 
vivacious disposition and unvarying good humor have given her 
an important part in the social life of the College. 



MISS ESTELLE ROBERSON 



Miss Roberson is an assistant in Piano and received her 
musical education at the Meridian Conservatory. Miss Roberson 
is a natural musician, playing on almost every instrument and 
her pupils catch her love for music and advance rapidly. 






MISS EDNA PHILL IPS 



Miss Phillips, of the Department of Expression, is a 
graduste of Stephen's College of Columbia, Mo., also of the 
Emerson College of Oratory of Boston. Miss Phillips is one of 
the main stays of the Glee Club which is in such great demand 
and uses her managerial and executive ability to great advantage 
in the several kinds of entertainments. 



MISS MARY ELLA GRAHAM 



Miss Graham is the head of the Art Department. She 
is a graduate of Blue Mountain and of I. L & C. Beginning 
the ai't work this session without any equipment, she has built 
up an enrollment equal to that of many larger schools. She is 
one of the most popular of the younger teachers. 



MRS. E. L. BEDFORD 



Mrs. Bedford is matron of the Boarding Department. 
She has had years of experience in boarding schools and knows 
what is necessary to have things looking bright and attractive 
and she also knows how to provide good things to eat. 



MISS MARIAH JOHNSON 



Miss Johnson is a graduate of Blue Mountain College. 
She is a specialist in Primary work and her department is the 
pride of the College. She is also very much interested in re- 
ligious work among young people and is frequently called upon 
to give lectures upon this work at other places. 



MISS MATTIE RUSSELL 



W^^ Miss Mattie Russell is also a graduate of Blue Mountain 
College in addition to having taken a good deal of summer work. 
She has charge of the Intermediate Department. Miss Russell 
is a hard worker herself and manages to get a great deal of 
work out of her pupils. 



MRS. BESSIE RUSSELL 



Mrs. Russell is matron of the Industrial Home. Mrs. 
Russell came with years of experience at the Baptist Orphanage 
and her careful management and knowledge of the culinary art 
have been of great benefit to the Industrial girls financially and 
every other way. She has made the Industrial Home famous.

"Fair were they to behold, the Seniors of that Woman's College. 

When in the session they bore to the class room their text books. 

Lessons so well learned; then ah, fair indeed were those maidens; 

Fairer were they when on Sunday morn at Sunday School time. 

Down the plank walk they passed with their Bibles and Sunday School papers. 

Wearing their Oxford caps and robes of black and their class pins. 

When they had passed it seemed like the passing of exquisite music." 

[With apologies to Evangeline] 




GERTRUDE POLK. 

HATTIESBURG MISS- 



"Happy art thou as if every day thou hads't picked up a horse- 
shoe. ' ' — Longjelloiv. 





Gertrude has one of the brightest, quickest minds in 
college and is a leader in every department of college life. Her 
brilliant repartee and splendid conversational powers make her 
a star in any social gathering, consequently she is very fond of 
social functions. To her unending pluck and perseverance is 
due in great measure the success of the Pine Burr. President 
Senior Class; Class Prophet; President G. T. R. Literary Society 
1911-12; Pi-esident Philomathean Society third quar. ; Business 
manager of Pine Burr. 



RABA LEE PHILLIPS 



RAWLES SPRINGS. MISS. 



'A form more fair, a face more sweet ne'er hath it been my lot 
to meet." — Whittier. 



Raba comes from a gifted family of teachers and will 
probably be a shining light in that profession unless providential- 
ly hindered. Like several of her classmates she is unusually 
talented in music and is always in demand when such talent is 
needed. The issue of the Pine Burr will bear evidence of her 
literary ability as she is directly responsible for most of its con- 
tents. Pianist Y. W. A.; Sec. Philomathean Society third 
quar.; Tennis Club; Glee Club; Editor-in-chief of Pine Burr. 



VERA MCLENDON 



"The soul of music slumbers in the shell 

'Till waked and kindled by the Master's spell." - 



-Rogers: 



Vera receives a diploma in piano. Having the very soul 
of [music herself, by her rare gift she is enabled to stir the 
deepest appreciation of it in others. But this is not her only 
talent. It has been said of her that she can do more different 
kinds of work than any girl in school. Shr ■« one of the busi- 
ness managers of the Annual and is responsible for a generous 
portion of its success. Pianist llee Club; Vice-Pres. Y. W. A.; 
Pres. Philomathe: n Society u. ^d quar.; Anniversarian of 
Philomathean Society; Associate Business Mgr. of Pine Burr. 




LUCILE MOODY 

MAXEYS. GA. 

"I can do with my pencil what I know, what I see, what, at 
bottom of my heart I wish for." — Robert Browning. 

Lucile is our only graduate in art. By industry she has 
developed her natural ability, and we are truly proud of her 
accomplishments, and we believe yet she will jjush forward to 
the unattained heights, for 

"A man's reach should exceed his grasp, 
or what's a heaven for?" 

To her talent and hard work. The Pine Burr owes many 
of its little sketches. She is a favorite socially and has been a 
help in the religious life of the School. President Art Club; 
Secretary Philomathean Society, first quarter; President Y. W. 
A. : Art Editor of Pine Burr. 



LUCY HALL PACK 

HATTIESBURG MISS 

"She sang his heart away, away. 
She sang his heart away." — Stauntoyi. 



If the girls of Woman's College were to be asked whether 
they had ever seen any one so full of music that it oozed out at 
both voice and finger tips, they would say with one accord. 
"Lucy Hall." This musical genius is quiet, unassuming and 
modest and is said to be the hardest working music pupil at the 
college. She is popular with students and faculty, will answer 
a young man if he speaks to her and is blessed with the happiest 
features of face and disposition. She expects to devote her life 
to her chosen specialty. Glee Club; Graduate in Piano. Member 
Y. W. A. and Philomathean Society; Associate Editor of Pine 
Burr. 

SOPHIA OPHELIA SUTTON 

PRENTISS. M IBS .- '" . 

"She doeth little kindnesses which most leave undone or 
despise. ' ' — Lowell. 

Sophia is one of the best beloved girls. Her sweet, 
unselfish dispositljn endears her to all from Prep, to Senior, and 
her greatest desire is to fit herself for the highest service of 
which she is capable. She hopes to be a missionary to China. 
She shines on the tennis court, is a close conscientious student 
and teaches in the Primary Department of the Sunday School. 
Here's to a long and Celestial Republic.

Editor of Pine Burr. 



EULA LEE BUCKLEY 

PINOLA, MISS. 



"A voice, gentle, soft and low, an excellent thing in tvoman."- 
Shakespeare. 



Eula who receives a diploma in piano is one of our most 
conscientious students. She is thoroughly in love with music, 
highly appreciative of the beauties of the work, and accepts 
uncomplainingly all the drudgery of the daily hard work. The 
gentleness of her nature seems echoed in- the lightness of her 
touch, and the strength of her character is suggested by its 
accuracy and firmness. We believe that the qualities we know 
her to possess will assure her success as she goes from these 
halls. Diplomain piano: Class Poet; Treas. Hermenian Society: 
College Librarian. 



PEARL DUCKWORTH 

MOUNT OLIVE, MISS 

"Her air, her smile, her motions. 

Told of ivomanly completeness; 

A music as of household songs. 

Was in her voice of sweetness." — Whittier. 



"Miss Pearl" is perhaps our most dignified Senior. It 
can be said of her that no member of the class is a harder or 
closer worker, always at class, always doing her very best, she 
has worked her way toward the goal of the college girl— her 
diploma. As she has already successfully "trained the young 
idea," she is Dean of the Teacher's Club. She will carry with 
her the best and kindest wishes of faculty and students. Pres. 
Hermenian Soc. second quai-. : Sec. of Senior Class: Pres. 
Teacher's Club. 



RUBY BATSON 



HATTIESBURG, MISS. 



"Many love music for music's sake. 

Many because her touches can awake 

Thoughts that repose ivithin the breast half-dead. 

And rise to follow ivhereshe loves to lead."—Landor. 



Ruby is also a graduate in piano. She is our only local 
Senior in music and our only "Ruby" and we are proud of her. 
She has wonderful talent in music and her renderings always 
charm those who hear her. She is lo'ed by all who know her. 
has attractive and winning ways and is fond of social gatherings. 

She expects to follow her profession in music and our best 
wishes are to her in her undertakings. 



i^fuinr Pnrm 



As I sit and watch the sun 

Sink behind the western hills. 

And I look into the future, 

My heart with joy and sorrow fills. 



Yes, it's sad to think of leaving 
Those whom we so truly love. 

Knowing that we'll never meet them 
Till we reach the home above. 



Sorrow, at the thought of parting 
From my schoolmates all so dear; 

And to know that never more 
We will be together here. 



But it's joy to know we're ready 
To begin life's work aright. 

And we'll take our places bravely 
In the thickest of the fight. 



Never more to walk the campus 

Arm-in-arm with some dear friend, 

Trusting her with every secret. 
Her, in whom you can depend. 



Let us face life's sternest duties 
With a courage strong and true. 

Knowing well that vict'ry cometh 
To the brave and faithful few. 



Then, be brave, my Senior Sisters, 
You will conquer, never fear! 

If you're always truly faithful. 

To the lessons taught you here. 



Class Poet '13. 




'^utnr Qllass fritpb^rg 



In making a prophecy of the future of the class of '13 I do not feel that I am playing in the 
vague realm of mystery but rather that I am talking of the great realities of life. Out on the 
sea of Destiny we are not sailing under sealed orders, but our fate like an open scroll lies before 
us if we will but read. Let us not think that we are puppets, merely creatures of circumstance, 
for why has God given us our minds and intellect if it is not to shape our own destiny ? 

When I think of the ability and the possibilities of the girls of class '13, I cannot but predict 
for each and everyone of them a successful—not brilliant perhaps, but nevertheless successful- 
life. Of course the hardships, trials and discouragements will come, but it is through these that 
we gain strength to climb to higher heights. From our number, although small, will go repre- 
sentatives into every calhng of modern woman. 

Whom shall we see first, bearing our standard into the musical world but Lucy Hall, Eula, 
Vera and Ruby, each trying to better the world with her special talent. In art, the expression 
of all that is beautiful and wonderful in this world, Lucile is found as the painter of some of the 
greatest masterpieces. In the benighted land of the heathen, where the bravest and best heart 
is needed to endure the toil and hardships in enlightening these people to civilization, Sophia is 
the great and successful worker. Certainly some one of us must fathom the scientific problems 
that confound the nation and it is here that Pearl comes forward with her learning in astronomy 
to win honor and glory for herself. 'Tis said that Home is the proper place for woman, and 
how great it is that one of the girls of class '13 is capable of managing well household duties! 
None other is but Gertrude. In the present day the weaker sex must undergo much ridicule as 
to the position she takes in political aff'airs, but some day it will be fully reahzed that the better- 
ment of the country's welfare is due to the wise and strict lead that will be taken by woman in 
voting. Why should not one of our classmates become prominent in this phase of life? By her 
ability as a great leader and because of her domineering qualities, Raba can't escape her calling. 

"By their deeds ye shall know them." —Class Prophet.

This little poem will certainly be a mockery to 

a ditty or chime. 
Since I could never make a rhyme at the right 

time, 
But just to show you I'm a Junior and don't 

mind trying. 
You must "take a little tip" from me about 

the class without sighing. 

My desire is neither to exaggerate nor prevar- 
icate, 

For truly we are all great enough, for just 
plain facts to relate. 

Our class is one among the happiest in the 
world. 

We have to us each dav new truths unfurled. 



Who are these youthful climbers gay. 
What is this e'er progressing mass 

Which now advances up the way? 

'Tis the Nineteen Hundred Fourteen Class. 



Our stately and gracious President HoUey 
Will scale the height of the glorious goal. 
In her heart there is courage and fruition 

great. 
And her efforts shall yield golden and precious 

freight. 



Tho' Cora does "stunts" that would make the 

bravest tremble. 
And about which the faculty doth assemble. 



We can boast of her as having most boundless 

grit. 
Always battling with Trig, or Analxt. 



Both gentle and unassuming is she. 

With a smile for everybody, so innocent and 

free; 
'Tis Gladys around to make everything cheer, 
When all is gloomy and drear. 



May is greater than circumstances, forward 
she does look 

With the patience of love as a stream from 
the brook. 

There'll be changes impressed, on all faces 
and shown. 

When they, thy gentlest and tenderest influ- 
ence, do own. 



Carrie, Carrie, 

Ay! forever laugh thy girlish laughter, 
Then a moment after. 
Sneeze thy foolish sneeze. 



When we shall part and our college life is o'er. 
When classmates dear say farewell forever 

more. 
When tears of love from our eyes are flowing 

free. 
The fondest remembrance of all will be M. W. C. 
— Class Poet.

Such a bunch of Jolly Girls 

At our M. W. C. 
The Sophomores are truly pearls 

And fine as they can be. 

The "Bachelor Button" is their flower 

The emblem of their fate 
But if it lies within their power 

They'll help the Bachelor find a mate. 

"Grass hopper green and cerise" they'll we 

No matter who may guy 
Their aim's to bring to others cheer 

And banish clouds from every sky. 

Success will come your way ere long 

So pretty maids be spry, 
Determination's in your song 

So brief but strong "We'll win or die!"

In the first Freshman class of M. W. C. there were only eighteen girls, among the greenest 
of all green girls who entered on September IS, 1912. However most of us have changed our 
colors from green to blue. 

Our class is a famous museum in which we have (Bob) Boone who takes Spells often. 
We have a Bush that writes poetry just for Speight, a Thatch that plays Basketball on a May- 
field and pure Pearl Ware and a very Gay (W) Hoi (e) comb. In the base ball line we have a 
Lela who Bats-on all of us, a Morris who makes it a rule to make about 95 on Exams. (8 Wonder). 
Then we have Lowry, Floyd, Rawles, Yelverton who are famous because they belong to the 
Freshman class, a Bethea who stayed awake once in church a Martha as remarkable as any other 
Biblical character and a Pee-wee .Jennie who is one of the smallest girls in school and we leave 
Dellie Evans to bring up the rear in size.

iFr^aljman ^atm 



As the shades of night are lifted 
At the dawn of a new born day. 
When the sun's bright ray's are chasing 
The shadows of darkness away. 

So we stand today on the threshold 
Of a day that is bright and fair; 
And the future is full of promise 
To us, who are gathered here. 

We girls are just beginning 

A life that is new to all. 

And we would that beams of wisdom 

Into each of our lives would fall. 

And though there are days that are dreary, 
When we long for Home Sweet Home; 
When waves of distress overflow us 
And it seems that all hope is gone. 



Yet the plucky little Freshman, 
With courage strong and true, 
Will tackle the biggest problem 
And bravely battle through. 

We love our Senior Sisters 
Our Juniors and Sophomores too; 
And those who below us are striving 
The goddess of Wisdom to view 

And as for our noble teachers, 
We love them every one 
And though we have to study hard 
We have a lot of fun. 

So here's to the Freshman students 
At good M. W. C. 
Your record this year is splendid 
And so may it ever be. 

—Glass Poet 'U

The College Glee Club, under the able direction of Miss Stephens, has done some good 
work, this year Miss Stephens has studied extensively in the East, and is thoroughly qualified to 
do the special line of work she has chosen. 

The Glee Club sang at Jackson in November, at the meeting of the State Convention and 
has sung a number of times in the various churches in the city of Hattiesburg, at the public 
meeting given by the U. D. C. of Hattiesburg, at the Auditorium. The Glee Club was asked 
to sing, and they very ably assisted at Miss Pack's Senior piano recital.

Art 




On the eighteenth day of September. I entered the Mississippi Woman's College and join- 
ed the Art class, making the third pupil— what a gloomy outlook before us! How discouraged 
we were— what were we to do with four bare walls and a table? We called this our Studio. 

Soon, more tables and chairs were bought. The walls had a few pictures which relieved 
the bareness to some degree. Not only chairs, tables and pictures became more numerous, but 
by Christmas the class had increased to twelve. As the new pui)ils came in, some remarkable 
talent became evident which was an inspiration to u.s. 

The students taking china painting also had their battles to fight: the kiln, which had 
been neglected, failed to fire as it should and the dainty little designs which were painted with 
so much care and skill, upon the vases, plates, cups and saucers were put there only to be fired 
off' instead of on. 

After Christmas three new pupils entered our class, one of which was Lucile Moody (our 
Senior) and we are proud of her and her entrance seemed to bring us an inspiration. The six- 
teenth pupil at last entered and we not only have done good work but we have formed a real Art 
Studio.

Miss Phillips who has charge of the Expression Department is indeed an able instructor. 

Herjnatural ability and splendid training fit her in a marked degree for this line of work. She 
is a graduate of Stephens College, Columbia, Missouri, and also a graduate of the Emerson Col- 
lege of Oratory, Boston. She is a delightful reader, and her splendid executive ability tells for 
much in the Club work. 

Our friends may expect good results from her efforts here. 

Miss Phillips has trained the girls for the Philomathean play to be given on their anni- 
versary.

On the eve of the Christmas holidays, the Dramatic Club gave very successfully, an 
original minstrel, which had been given by the girls of Wellsley College. We modestly claim 
that our club did not fall far below the high standard reached by our friends in that good old 
college. 

This Amateur Minstrel, with its catchy songs and entertaining jokes delighted an 
audience which taxed standing room in the College Hall. All the characters were gaily array- 
ed as "Creole Belles" especially were the end girls, Misses Polk, Langford, Rogers and Gibson 
very picturesque as the Picture Maidens. Miss Carrie Jackson acted as the Interlocutor in a 
very pleasing manner. 

The curtain went down at the close of a very laughable farce entitled "The Three O'Clock 
Train." This was acted by Misses Holley McLendon and Vida Huff taking the parts of "negro 
gentlemen." This feature brought much merriment to the audience. 

All were pleased with the evening entertainment at the close of which the rules were 
suspended, and this did but add joy to the occasion. 

The following is a short clipping from the Daily News which is one of Hattiesburgs best 
papers : 



Entprtatnntfnt at tltr Momau'a (EoUrgt 

The feature of the entertainment was a Drama entitled "The Creole Belles" in which 
there was some good acting and splendid chorus work. 

The entertainment put teachers, pupils, performers and visitors in a happy Christmas spirit.

From this board in the chapel, we get daily our Bible readings, and some phase of our Home 
and Foreign work to be remembered in prayer. 

^\\x i. M. A. Work 

At the opening of the session, we organized a Young 
Woman's Auxiliary, the purpose of which is to instruct the 
members as to the needs and possibilities of our Mission 
fields, and help them to become more familiar with God's 
Word. We have a membership of 125; this is practically 
all of the boarding pupils. The average attendance has 
been very large. We meet on Tuesday afternoons, after 
school. 

In connection with this, we have a Mission Study Class 
which meets every Sunday afternoon. We are now study- 
ing "Western Women in Eastern Lands." 

Every evening after supper, except when there are 
services at the church, we assemble in the chapel for our 
twilight prayers. These meetings last from ten to fifteen 
minutes; each meeting is led by a girl who has volunteered 
the night before to be responsible for it. 

We by agreement have been carrying each a two-cent 
stamp to the breakfast table every Sunday morning as an offering to the Lord, and while it seems 
very little, when conscientiously contributed, it furnished us about two dollars a week for our 
work. Besides this, we made a Christmas offering for Medical Work in Foreign fields, and we 
made several special offerings. 

More than sixty girls have already completed the Sunday School Training Course and will 
receive diplomas at Commencement.

What was it? What was that sound that floated through the darkened college halls on the 
morning of November fourteenth? That sound of laughter mingled with exclamations of joy, 
and that echoed to the rhythm of light foot steps? Had a band of happy spirits taken possession 
of our Woman's College, or had it suddenly been changed into a palace where fairies romped 
and played ? 

These thoughts flashed through the minds of us who were still in the land of dreams. Then 
we awoke and were half ashamed of our folly— neither spirits nor fairies but the day of all days. 
Was there a girl who had not dreamed of it? On this day we were going to the state Baptist 
convention at Jackson and to Mississippi College. Just think "Little Sister" was really going 
to visit her "Big Brother." 

Quickly, we joined the happy throng and when about five-thirty o'clock we assembled at 
breakfast, a more excited crowd could not have been found. 

Then a long line of girls in caps and gowns went to the train, stopping once in town to give 
our fifteen "rahs" for Woman's College. 

Our train was decorated in all the glory of college colors and huge signs with ' 'Mississippi 
Woman's College" painted on them in bold letters. Several of our friends in Hattiesburg went 
with us and as we passed through diff^erent towns we were joined by others. 

Finally, about eleven o'clock our train reached Jackson. Then we gave more yells and sang 
"We are the girls from the regions of the pines" amid the hearty cheers and welcome given us. 

We visited many places of interest in Jackson until about three-thirty, when the train came 
to carry us to Clinton. When we arrived there, "whom did we see? All the boys of old M. C." 
And it can hardly be called an exaggeration to say, all the people of Clinton. 

Time surely had wings that afternoon. After we had spent a few most enjoyable hours on 
Mississippi College campus and had feasted in the large dining hall it was time to return to 
Jackson. 

Pleasant associations continued until we reached the Convention hall that night. 

There the reports of Mississippi's two Baptist schools were discussed and people listened 
with surprise and delight as an account of our Woman's College, Mississippi's baby, was given 
by our president. 

Train time? Could it be possible? Yes, the face of the honest old clock told us so, and in 
a short while our friends at the depot waved good bye as our train rolled away loaded with "girls 
from the Woman's College in for fun and in for knowledge," convinced that we had had our 
share of the former and realizing that we were returning to secure later. 

Lucy Hall Pack.

Listen, my friends, if you wish to hear, 
A small bit of history of our school so dear. 
'Twas the eighteenth of September in 1912, 
The events began of which I shall tell. 

The summer before, our President said. 
Had been rather hard on those at the head : 
'Twas work from the dawn 'till the sun's last ray. 
Without encouragement for many a day. 

Ehe tide turned, however, as the days passed on, 
Our school was discussed in many a home; 
Decisions were made and letters poured in. 
Showing that M. W. C. had many a friend. 

The day came to leave, the farewells were said. 
With glistening eye and quickly bowed head. 
And when we arrived in Hattiesburg, 
Our hearts were too full for us to utter a word. 

But as girl after girl arrived in the hall 
And room after room was checked off the wall, 
Our Presidnt's spirits had a sudden rise, 
And brighter and brighter grew the skies. 

The days passed on, as days always do, 

And we get accustomed to everything new, 

When one day the question of Societies was mentioned 

Which immediately aroused each one's attention. 

"But what shall we call them?" some one asked now. 
And no one replied for no one knew how. 
"I'll tell you. we'll write our brother at M. C, 
And whatever their 's are, that shall ours be." 

This accordingly was done and back came the word; 

Then nothing but "Hermenian" and "Philomathean" was heard. 

"Pm a 'Philo, ' " some said, and quick the reply, 

"And Pm a 'Hermenian' until I shall die!" 

Well, soon both were organized and went right to work. 
And no loyal member her duty would shirk, 
Our Hermenians are loyal as loyal can be. 
For "Loyalty" is our motto you see. 

Now long shall our colors, the white and the gold. 
True love and devotion in every heart hold. 
And out in the future wherever we be, 
0! Hermenian, we'll ever be loyal to thee. 



(Sliauksgtuiug 



Thanksgiving Day at lastl One long looked for and one never to be forgotten by the girls 
at Mississippi Woman's College. All knew that on this eventful day we would see our "Big 
Brothers" again for they had promised to return our visit at the first opportunity that was given 
them. Much to our joy and satisfaction the opportunity presented itself in the form of a foot 
ball game between Mississippi College and Howard College, Birmingham, Ala., which was to be 
played in Hattiesburg. 

The brightness of the day added much to our merriment and a spirit of thankfulness pre- 
vailed throughout. In the morning we had the privilege of hearing a very inspiring sermon at 
Immanuel church by Brother Homer H. Webb. 

When the service was over it was past train time and we knew the boys had arrived. 
Many of us were expecting friends and relatives out to dinner and of course the idea of having 
men in the dining room caused a great excitement among the other girls. Some were disappoint- 
ed for alas a few "Brothers" were left in Jackson. When the bell rang we all filed eagerly into 
the dining room. Mrs. Bedford must have tried herself for really the dinner was "fit for a 
king." We did notexpress in words our enjoyment of it for "actions speak louder than words." 

After the feast came more merry making. All was one mad rush till we were safely 
within the street car on our way to the park where the game between Mississippi College and 
Howard was to take place. When we got there we found many of our "Brothers" besides those 
on the team, awaiting our arrival. 

The game was soon called and we at once started our enthusiastic yells. When M. C. 
was hard pressed and it seemed as if Howard would score, then it was our yells rang out 
encouragement to them: 

"They have kept their rep, rep, rep 
Kept their rep, rep, rep— 
Who kept their rep? 
Mississippians 

They're going to win, win, win 
Going to win again, win again, win again now." 
and truly they kept their rep for at the close of the game the score stood 20 to in their favor. 

As we left the park we all sang "There'll be a Hot Time at the Woman's College To- 
night." And anyone looking in at the College about eight o'clock would have readily believed 
this statement. The halls, parlors and chapel were decorated with Mississippi College and 
Howard colors, pennants and autumn leaves in abundance. 

The hours passed all too swiftly and before we realized it, it was time for us to part. 
About eleven o'clock "Doctor Dutehie" announced to our visitors that any fond good nights 
must be said at once as the special to Jackson would leave in thirty minutes.

Ah I me, what a mysterious, weird, uncanny feeHng was cast upon me that night, as those 
immortals glided softly and stealthily in and about the ghostly atmosphere. 

No, you wouldn't like to be an inhabitant of the River Styx region, unless you had gained 
your rights as a spirit naturally by birth, for believe me, e'en tho' it was Hallowe'en night, and 
the proper time for the appearance of "spooks" and "elfins," not only did it make a red-haired, 
freckled-faced negro, turn white in one single night, but it— it scared us .'po" white folks nigh 
to death." However by Providence, I was spared to relate the mysterious, hypnotising move- 
ments of those wholly white, supposed figures; and what aspect the reception hall and parlors of 
the blessed M. W. C. had attained. 

The real genuine time for the appearance of unearthly creatures is in the deep, deep, 
midnight, when in the house, only the loud, slow tick-tock over the mantle can be heard, while 
on the outside, nothing but the hooting of the owls can be audible, and you wouldn't go through 
the old graveyard, for all the pickles and onions a college girl can eat. but you know these were 
very discreet, healthy regular hour keeping spirits, so just as the bell tolled the eighth time, a 
long white silencious, spectral procession filed in the chapel and performed all the chapel duties. 
You may not believe me, but I cross my heart, on that identical spot where the grave Bro. Estes 
stands and sways his hands so softly to the strains of music and pours forth notes every morn- 
ing that would make a night-in-gale take the second place, a long slim wiry, creature did just 
like the aforesaid person, 'cept of course he couldn't sing. 

Two of the ghosts' companions had departed for Hades, since their last celebration, so the 
whole band sadly and mournfully wended their way to the shrine of their dead, and what did 
they behold and hear? Well the tomb was spectral and ghostly horrible and frightful, and such 
groans and moans were never heard before. The effects of it produced on these poor mourners 
were heart rending. 

Ghosts have a future as well as true people for they soon found themselves in the witches 
tent and there from the wheel of Fortune, each one received his Fate or Luck in a peanut. 

The jollity certainly couldn't be complete without a gi'and ball so forgetting, all of their 
sorrows and the visit to the death chamber, all joined in the witches dance (however please 
pardon my not telling what grace was exhibited) as our Reverend O'Briant's and President 
Johnson's spirits were there, who showed by their quick, merry steps, that their hilarity could 
not be surpassed, I know they had received their reward for all the patience and long suflrering 
they had. had with the M. W. C. girls. 

Peanuts and apples! what a delicious repast for ghosts for they devoured them with an 
appetite like that of a basket ball player. After such indulgence not a single spook was capable 
of undergoing further enjoyment until some spied five sure enough strange beings, stealing in 
the entrance and poor men they were really afraid that about one hundred and fifty girls were 
coming after them, however in behalf of their discipline protection (and then some more reasons 
too) they decided to depart in silence and they only had the pleasure in hearing the teachers' 
laughter which always peals forth when such unfrequent visitors are on the premises. 

Perhaps you've been puzzled the whole time as to who were the hosts and hostess of this 
enjoyable occasion, but surely you can answer that easily. Everything that is done tip top, the 
faculty and seniors do, and great is their ability. — C. J.

A frarttral Mkt 



One afternoon Vivian Arnold was seated in the kitchen door of her home, shelHng peas. 
It was a lovely June afternoon and as she sat thus, her gaze wandered over the fields out to the 
west where the sun was slowly sinking. She watched it in silence as it hung poised for a 
moment, a glowing ball of fire, seemingly bidding the world good night before suddenly dropping 
below the horizon. 

Then drawing a deep breath, as if dreading to broach the subject, she turned to her 
mother who was helping her and said, "Mother, have you and Father decided about my going 
to school this winter or have you said any more about it?" 

Her mother did not reply at once. She had been expecting this question and did not know 
just how to answer it. 

Three weeks before this there had been a "speaking" at the little school house, near 
Vivian's home in the interest of education. She had attended this and met there Mary Mans- 
field and her brother Hubert. In the course of their conversation Vivian learned that Mary 
would be a Junior at the Mississippi Woman's College the next session, while Hubert would be a 
Senior in Mississippi College. 

A great desire to go to college grew in Vivian's heart as she listened to the various speeches 
made in behalf of the Mississippi Woman's College. She believed that her father would send 
her if he could be made to realize what it would mean to her and so, when she reached home 
she pleaded very earnestly with him to allow her to go. She knew her mother was willing but 
always left such matters with her husband. He did not give her an answer then and the matter 
was seemingly dropped but Vivian had not forgotten it and now that she mentioned it her mother 
replied: "Daughter, I don't know whether he wants you to go or not. He has not said much 
about it. I believe he has been studying over it though and I hope he will let you go one session 
anyhow. "Oh, I hope he will!" Vivian said eagerly. "If I could be anything like Miss Mans- 
field I'd be so happy. And mama, her brother makes me think of the heroes in books I have 
read. He is so tall and handsome and so kind to his sister. I don't know what it is to have a 
brother. Jack used to be good that way to me though and she sighed as she spoke. 

About a week after this Mr. Arnold came in and said; "Vivian, you remember your 
Uncle Samuel Atwood. don't you?" If you remember. Jack, his only son, was a promising lad 
but a trifle reckless. Well, I saw Samuel in town today for the first time in years. It seems 
he's been living in another state and become very wealthy. He told me that Jack had gone 
away, he did not know just where, but that they hear from him occasionally from diflierent 
places. He seems to be doing well though if he'd stick to one thing long enough. As I was 
going to say, Samuel asked me about you and when I told him you were still at home, he asked me 
to let him send you to school. Of course I did not want to be thought so poor as that and told 
him I couldn't allow it. He then said if I'd pay your board he'd give you your tuition. We 
agreed to this and now, if you want to go this winter, why its just with you and your mother." 

And now the question was settled and mother and daughter began the preparations for 
Vivian's going away. 

Of course Vivian remembered her cousin Jack Atwood — how kind and courteous he had 
been to her when they had played together as children. Their devotion to each other was such 
that they promised to marry each other when they grew up. Then Mr. Atwood moved away 
and Vivian and Jack lost sight of each other. She had even forgotten the childhood promise. 

Very quickly flew the days and soon the 16th of September had come, the day on which 
Vivian was to leave. It was hard to bid the little mother and kind father, goodbye, but the 
future was so full of promise that it was with a brave face that she started to the station three 
miles from her home. 

With a fast beating heart, Vivian Arnold went up the front steps of the college that was 
to be her home for several months. Her nervousness was soon over however, when a pretty 
young girl whom she recognized as Mary Mansfield, ran quickly dcwn the steps to meet her. 
Then a sweet-faced little woman came up and introduced herself as the matron and Vivian soon 
felt at home. 



The day passed very pleasantly to her after she became used to her new surroundings. 
Her sweet disposition and natural kindheartedness soon won her a host of friends. Mary was 
very glad to know that she had been of some influence in getting Vivian to come and they were 
the best of friends. 

Occasionally Vivian would hear of Hubert who was back in Mississippi College, though 
she seldom asked about him. One day however, Mary showed her a part of one of his letters. 
He said, "Mary, do you know what ever became of that pretty little brown-eyed girl whom we 
met at the little school house near Meadow ville? I have often wondered about her and wished 
that she might be there in school with you." 

"Why I had no idea that he remembered me, " Vivian said laughingly, but there was a 
queer little thrill of happiness in her heart that he remembered her. 

"It seems that he does though." Mary replied, "I shall be glad to tell him that you are 
here." 

After this Hubert and Vivian would often send messages to each other through Mary's 
letters until they soon came to feel that they were old friends. 

The months passed quickly and soon the first year of Vivian's school life was over. 
Summer has come and she is at home again, the same, yet different. She had caught a higher 
vision of life and had determined that if it were possible, she would some day finish at the M. 
W. C. 

Mary Mansfield had promised to visit her that summer and Vivian was looking forward to 
her coming with great pleasure and too, she had a secret hope that Hubert would come with her. 
Nor was she disappointed. One afternoon as she was seated on the broad old-fashioned gallery 
of her home, she heard the "honk-honk" of a motor car, an unusual thing for the neighborhood 
of Meadow ville" Looking up, she saw that it was stopping in front of her little home. As she 
went out to meet them, she saw that the occupants were Mary and Hubert Mansfield, as they 
were all genuinely glad to see one another, time passed quickly. Hubert had to return the next 
day, but Mary stayed for several days. 

Vivian's parents had already decided that she should finish school, and so the next session 
found her back taking full Sophomore work and making a success of it. Her Sophomore and 
Junior years passed by very pleasantly but uneventfully. However they meant much to Vivian 
for now she and Hubert were regular correspondents and the days his lelters came were always 
looked forward to very eagerly. 

Mary who had finished the second year that Vivian was in school had married a splendid 
young man who was teaching at her home in Arlington. 

At last Vivian's Senior year arrived and her work was very heavy, for she was finishing 
in both music and literary work. 

Hubert had written her faithfully every week for a long time but now she had not heard 
from him in over two months. She knew that he had gone abroad to take a special course in 
Germany. In fact she had had one letter from him since he I'eached his destination. Either he 
had written and the letters were misplaced or he had forgotten her. 

This last thought would not leave her as she stood at the window of her little room one 
bright April day. It was the noon hour and as she stood gazing out into space, wondering if 
all her day dreams were to come to naught, she saw the girls coming with the mail. Oh how 
eagerly she listened as girl after girl called from her window: "Did I get any mail?" "Did I?" 
"How many?" "Did Old Lady?" etc. Vivian did not ask, but as they came up the walk, Ruby 
Ardmore her chum and confidant caught sight of her wishful face and called out; "Hi Vivian, 
don't look so woe-be-gone. Here's a letter with a foreign post-mark on it. Wonder whom it 
can be from?" 

Vivian turned quickly and snatching Hubert's picture from the dresser, pressed it close 
to her saying "You do care, don't you Hubert?" 

In a few minutes Ruby Ardmore brought the letter to her saying as she gave it to her 
"now watch the little girlie smile." while Vivian broke the seal Ruby seated herself at the piano 
and began playing "Meet me Tonight in Dreamland." 

"What did he say, Vivian?" she asked turning quickly to look at her. "Why what on 
earth is the matter dear? Did he write bad news?" she exclaimed at sight of Vivian's white 
face. Vivian did not reply but throwing herself on the bed, buried her face in the pillow. Ruby 



tried to comfort her but not knowing what the trouble was, she knew not what to say. 

Presently Vivian looked up and said, "Ruby promise not to mention this and you may 
read the letter. ' ' 

"I promise," Ruby replied. It read: 

"Dear Miss Arnold: I have been informed by what I consider a reliable source that you 
are to be married soon, having been engaged to the gentleman for several years. Therefore, I 
deem it best that our correspondence should cease at once. 

Yours truly, 
HUBERT MANSFIELD." 

"Why what can he mean?" Ruby asked in a puzzled tone. "I thought surely that you 
and he were^" 

"Hush Ruby, please" Vivian said sitting up suddenly and beginning to rearrange her 
hair. "Dont say anything more about this for my sake. I think I understand the situation. 
He wants to end this episode and this is the excuse he gives. Who over there could have even 
known me, much less have told him such a falsehood? If he cared for me he wouldn't believe 
it anyway." 

"He does care for you, I know he does," Ruby answered. "He has been true for these 
many years and he is too good to do this purposedly. I know him well. Haven't I lived near 
him all my life and dont I know what I am talking about? Vivian, listen, please write him and 
tell him that there has been a mistake." 

"Indeed I will not," Vivian replied with some spirit. "If he doesn't take the trouble to 
investigate the matter, I shall not explain anything. No my dear, I will take your advice in 
lots of things but not in this." With this she jumped up and went to the basin to bathe her 
face. "Ruby dear; please tell them that I did not want any dinner when you go in, and forget 
anything and everything I have said concerning this little matter." 

After this, Vivian worked harder than ever. Her preparations for her coming recital 
together with her literary work kept her very busy so she had little time to brood over her 
troubles. Could the little moon beams peeping through her window have talked, however, they 
could have told of many a damp pillow and sleepless night— but they are no tattlers. 

In one of the large medical schools in Germany, Hubert Mansfield sat in his room, his 
head bowed on his hands, thinking of the past and future. 

Presently, the door opened and a young man, Hubert's roommate came into the room. 
He was a handsome boy although his face showed trace of a somewhat reckless life. 

Hubert had met Jack Atwood soon after he had reached Germany and as he was a student 
at the college to which Hubert was going they soon became great friends. 

"Well Hubert, old boy, what's the matter now? You seem a trifle blue. I suppose you 
are day dreaming, though. To tell you the truth Hubert, I am homesick and the prodigal son 
has decided to return to his father and relatives. By-the way, I have a little cousin who 
finishes at the Mississippi Woman's College this year. We have been engaged for years so I 
think I shall begin to make preparations for returning home in time for commencement exercises 
and then claim the fulfillment of her promise." Have I never mentioned her before? Well it's 
not because I haven't thought of her but only because I knew you did not know her and, besides 
you do not tell me your love aflPairs. Here's her picture, however, taken, about three weeks 
ago." And Jack drew a picture from his pocket as he spoke and handed it to Hubert. 

As the latter looked at the picture, his face blanched and he caught his breath suddenly, 
for there looking up at him with a sweet wistfulness, was the face of Vivian Arnold. What 
could it mean? Vivian engaged to this man, her cousin, for several years, and yet last summer 
she had all but promised to marry him! There must be some mistake, but no. Jack had said so 
and there was her picture to confirm his words. 

"Well, what do you think of her?" Jack asked carelessly as Hubert handed the picture 
back to him. He had not noticed Hubert's agitation and now the latter had regained his com- 
posure. He resolved that he would never tell Jack of his acquaintance with Vivian since they 
were engaged and so he replied: 

"She is very beautiful. You say you have been engaged for several years and yet you 
have stayed away so long? When have you seen her last?" 

There was a faint hope in Hubert's heart that pei-haps Vivian did not love Jack now as 



r^ 



she had not seen him for some time. But Jack's answer soon dispelled this hope. 

Jack did not really know why he led Hubert on to believe this. Prehaps it was only his 
love for exaggeration and his desire to try the role of an engaged man. Many times since he 
had left home several years before, he had gotten into different escapades but through it all he 
had managed, on the whole to conduct himself honorably and to avoid flirtation. He had written 
his father two or three times a year and in his last letter he had mentioned Vivian. Thereupon 
Mr. Atwood had written him everything concerning her school life and had enclosed her picture 
in hopes that it might influence Jack to return. Then Jack remembered their childhood promise 
which prompted the joke that was to have such sad consequences. 

And so he replied, "Oh! it's been at least a year. You did not know that I had been in 
America lately, did you?" I received her picture about a week ago, however." 

"I commend your choice" was all that Hubert replied and at this the matter was dropped. 
Jack really intended telling him the truth but for some reason it passed from his mind, and so 
Hubert, his hopes and dreams shattered, could see no other way than to put an end to his and 
Vivian's correspondence. He debated this question for several weeks before writing the letter 
which had so wounded her. 

Vivian worked harder than ever the last two months of her Senior year. She belonged to 
the Annual stafl^ which with her other duties kept her very busy and allowed little time to think 
of this past real sorrow of her life. 

The days flew by and commencement night had come. The large auditorium of the ad- 
ministration building was crowded to the fullest by the proud and admiring relatives and friends 
of both the girls and the school. On the platform in a circle were seated the fifteen beautiful 
graduates among whom were none lovlier than Vivian Arnold and Ruby Ardmore. 

Vivian's mother and father were present and also her uncle and aunt. Many beautiful 
presents had been received and everything was all excitement. 

But deep down in Vivian's heart was an ache that could not be healed, for she knew that 
Hubert had intended being there and now he was far away. 

The graduation exercises were admirably conducted, the delivering of the diplomas 
being the last thing on the program. As Vivian's time came, she stepped out on the platform, 
and as she smiled down into the little mother's proud tearfilled eyes, she caught sight of a young 
man seated some distance behind her parents. His face was strangely familiar but she could 
not quite place him. As she seated herself beside Ruby Ardmore the latter whispered: 

"Vivian, whom do you suppose that handsome young man is? He is seated just a little 
distance behind your mother and has been watching you all the evening. Somehow he looks 
like you a little." 

After everything was over and congratulations were being showered on the happy young 
graduates, Vivian made her way to her mother and father, for she wanted their good wishes 
first. As she stood there with an arm around each one, the handsome young stranger approach- 
ed them and said: 

"Well Cousin Vivian, let me congratulate you too." 

"Why its Jack." Vivian cried. "Oh, I am so glad to see you. When did you come home?" 

After speaking to his Uncle and Aunt, Jack replied: 

"I have been in America for about two months, but only came home last week. You see 
I wanted to surprise you. By the way," he added, "Who was that stunning girl seated by you? 
I do believe she's the prettiest girl I've ever seen. 

"Why, thats Ruby Ardmore, my chum, and one of the sweetest girls here. Come, I want 
you to meet her, " said Vivian, leading the way to Ruby, who was surrounded by a host of 
friends. 

"Wait a moment, " Jack said, "I have a little present here which my roommate in H— 
College in Germany sent you. I mentioned to him that I was coming home to see my cousin 
graduate and he asked permission to send her this httle package on condition that she would not 
open it until she went to her room on commencement night. I thought it a queer request from a 
stranger, but there, he's a queer fellow anyway, sometimes." 

By this time they had reached Ruby, to whom Vivian introduced Jack. It seemed that 
from the first, their admiration was mutual and very soon they were on friendly grounds. 

As soon as possible that night, Vivian went to her room, for she was all curiosity to know 



the contents of the little package. Very quickly she broke the seal and undid the wrappings. 
"Oh!" she exclaimed, "how lovely!" for there lay a beautiful pearl necklace. "What can the 
man have meant to send such an expensive present? Surely I cannot accept it from an utter 
stranger." As she spoke, she raised it up to obtain a better view of its shimmering lovliness. 
As she did this a tiny note fell out. Quickly she opened it and read: 

"It was purchased when I first came and was to have been your graduation present. I 
cannot let another wear it and yet I cannot bear to keep it longer. Will you accept it even now 
from one who will ever hold your memory dear and who wishes for you the greatest possible 
happiness always? H. M." 

That was all, but as she read these words a great throb of happiness filled her heart for 
she could read between the lines his great love for her. But how and why did that terrible 
misunderstanding come between them? If he loved her truly, how could he accept without 
proof, such a falsehood? These thoughts troubled her a great deal. That night she knelt beside 
her bed and prayed that if it were God's will, this trouble would be cleared away and she and 
Hubert would be restored unto each other. 

The following day Vivian left for home, carrying with her the memory cf many pleasant 
hours spent within the sacred walls of the Mississippi Woman's College. 

By invitation. Jack followed Ruby Ardmore later to her home near Arlington but this was 
by no means the last trip, for, ere the October leaves began to fall. Ruby Ardmore was the 
promised wife of Jack Atwood. 

One day while out walking, they spoke of Vivian. Suddenly Jack asked: 

"Ruby, why. is it that Vivian never visits you? I have tried to get her to come with me 
sometimes but she never will. I know that she loves you devotedly and I believe she is a great 
friend of Mrs. Bran ton who lives here, is she not?" 

"Jack, I have never mentioned this to anyone for I promised her I would not. Since you 
ask me, however, I will tell you on conditions you will never mention it," Ruby replied. 

"Why of course not," Jack answered, "but if its a secret you need not tell me." 

"But I want to, " she said. Then she told him of Vivian's love affair and of the letter 
which she had received and which had caused all the trouble. 

When she had finished Jack asked: "Would you mind telling me who the man was?" 

"Therein lies the secret of Vivian's not coming to Arlington, for he was Mrs. Branton's 
brother, Hubert Mansfield," Ruby replied. 

Jack looked as if she had struck him. "Do you mean to tell me that Hubert Mansfield 
was all but engaged to Vivian and they have now broken up?" he asked excitedly. "Oh, what 
will ever become of me, for here I've gone and all but wrecked two loving hearts with my awful 
love for joking." 

"What do you mean. Jack?" Ruby asked. "Do you know Hubert Mansfield and what had 
you to do with this affair any way?" 

Jack then told her of his acquaintance with Hubert and of the time when he had jokingly 
mentioned his engagement to Vivian. 

"I had no idea that he had ever even heard of her, or I would never have done such a thing. 
I shall write him and explain everything though, this very night," he added, as they reached 
the house. 

And he did w^rite Hubert, telling him everything and begging his forgiveness for the 
trouble he had brought on him. 

In the meantime Hubert had left the college for his health was almost broken down by 
hard study. He had gone out into the country to a little farm-house where he could have rest 
and quiet for a few w-eeks. Here the letter found him for the now celebrated Dr. Mansfield 
could not be hid. After reading this explanation, Hubert lost no time in starting for home, but 
engaged board on the first out going steamer. 

■ ■ ■ It was late afternoon in December, only two days before Christmas. The air was 
filled with the fragrance of the spruce and pine which the children had brought in to decorate 
little school house, and the dark green holly with its gleaming red berries against this back 
ground made a pleasing picture. 

Vivian Arnold stood beside the Christmas tree on the front of the little stage. She was 
teaching at home that year in the little school house and was the idol of every little pupil's heart. 



She had planned to have them a little Chri^tma? tree on Christmas Eve, and now having dismissed 
her little folks she remained to put th ; iriM'.iin^ t)j:hes on the tree. As she reached up to 
straighten the large gold star on the t)p ol the trea, sh? haard a quick step on the walk outside. 
The door was opened and a young man stepped into the room. Vivian stood transfixed, one 
rounded white arm raised to the sta.-, th? other hand pressed to her heart. As she stood thus, 
Hubert Mansfield, for it was he, thought he had never seen a fairer picture. In her simple little 
white dress, with her dark curls, havinij slipped from their fastenings, falling around her 
and her soft brown eyes beaming with \o,'} light, she seemed as if she were the Christmas Angel 
lent to earth for but a season. 

As Hubert went to her side he said: "My Vivian, can you.^forgive me? I know all now 
and oh! I love you so, my darling." 

Then, when everything had bain exp'ain'^d and Hubert had slipped a beautiful little ring 
on her finger, Vivian said: 

"Hubert, I have asked God to rastore us to ei:h other. Now, let us thank Him for this 
gracious answer to prayer. ' ' 

And as they knelt together ti thank Him who is the author of Love it seemed that the 
Heavenly Host could be heard sin^ n ;■, "Pri^e on Earth. Good Will to Men," and the Christmas 
spirit brooded over all.

There once were five little maids 

Five shy M. W. C. maids 

Who arose, I must say 

For they thought it was day 

And to the Industrial Home they made their way. 

They stopped in the hall to see, 

What time of night it might be, 

They thought it was five 

But to their surprise. 

They found it was nearly three. 

Chorus- 
Now these little maids are sleeping in their classes 
Ever dreaming 
Of breakfast steaming 

Far o' far, 'neath zero their grades are falling 
Teachers appalling, 
Them all the day. 

They would cook and they would sweep 

They would nod and they would sleep 

While the man in the moon 

Hid his face too soon. 

And left them alone in the darkness and the glooms. 

They slept on pallets on the floor 

From the stove clear back to the door 

In the wood box too 

There was found a few 

Elsewhere there might have been more.

"A iJ^rmrmau" 



In a corner of a certain hall at the Mississippi Woman's College is a mail box over which a 
number of girls were scrambling. "0, please let me get my letter;" "Stop, that's mine;" "Ha, 
here's a letter from Joe;" "Give me my card before you tear it up." All such exclamations arose 
above the noise they made. Ah, let me settle this fuss!" said a stalwart girl as she seized the 
bundle of letters and began to deliver them. "Mable Due, Margie Lake, Stella Brown, Helen 
Banks"— All this time Helen had been wedging her way into the crowd and upon hearing her 
name called and landed in the middle of it. From Mississippi College! Who on earth?" She 
entered her room tearing at the envelope. "0, Helen, did you get your permit to go home with 
me? Mother has just said you must be sure to go," eagerly inquired her roommate. "No, 
Margie, it's a letter from M. C. What do you know about me? I can't imagine who it is from.' 
She drew out the letter and turned to the last page to see the signature. "Billie Buck!" Helen 
gasped. "Who is he?" asked Margie. 

"He's the boy you said you were crazy about when I told you of him. What does he mean?" 

"Read it and see," said Margie. 

She read the following: "Dear Trix:"— "That's what he used to call me," she giggled. 
' 'Well do I remember that you said you hoped you would never hear of me again, but I am writing 
this only to ask a favor of you. I have heard that you girls are going to name your literary 
societies Hermenian and Philomathean for ours. I certainly am glad you are and I am very 
anxious that you join the Hermenian, for it is the better society. Write me at once if you will 
promise this. Sincerely your friend, Billie Buck." 

"I wonder what he takes me for. Why, yes, I'll just break my neck to join them, now 
since Billie said so. The crazy dunce!" 

"Aren't you ashamed of yourself?" I know he is a dandy fellow and you've got to like 
him. But, never mind, I'll join the Hermenians and take Billie for myself. But, what's the 
matter with you and Billie any way?" 

"Nothing that would interest you. Come on, let's go to supper." She threw the letter 
on the floor and stamped with her foot. 

The next morning Margie was up by daylight and seated at her table writing hurriedly. 
She threw an occasional glance toward Helen who was still asleep. She stopped to read what 
she had written: 

"Dear Billie: I was so glad to get your letter and to learn that you are at M. C. I shall 
be delighted to join the Hermenian just because you asked me to. (You see I am not so mad 
after all). — " "My, isn't that cute? I may get into it, but it's worth the risk if she'll only join us." 

Helen raised up on her elbow and exclaimed: "What, in the name of sense, do you mean 
by getting up so early?" 

Margie was frightened, but answered calmly, "I hope you remember that we have to hand 
in a theme today." 

"0, please let me copy yours. I don't feel like writing one," Helen begged. "Alright—" 

"0. I must hug you for that!" Up she bounced and on her way she bumped the table, 
knocking a picture directly across the letter. 

"0, let me see how much you have written." Margie placed both hands over the picture 
saying, "Not now, for you will only laugh at it. Wait until I have it finished. 

Helen jumped into the bed again saying, "0, bother English lessons: I am going to sleep." 

Margie added Trix to the letter and mailed it. 

Helen could not understand Margie's conduct the following week and why she watched 
the mail so closely. Finally, one day, while Margie was out walking, the mail was delivered. 
When, upon her return she entered her room she found Helen lying across the bed with a letter 
clutched in her hand. Margie could hardly suppress an exclamation." Why. Trix, what is the 
matter? Tell Marge and let her help you." 

Helen turned a tear-stained face to Margie and threw her arms around her neck. "Margie, 
dear, you've done it all. How did you know that I loved him?" 

"Wliy, what have I done?' asked innocent Margie.' 

"Listen here: 'Dearest Trix— I am so glad that you are no longer pouting, but have 
promised to join the Hermenians. Forget the past and let us . ' Marge the rest is just for me. ' '

Ada B. —Leaving school — 

Lives of great men all remind us, 

As their pages o'er we turn, 
That we're apt to leave behind us 
Letters that we ought to burn. 

Katie B— You know, when I get to heaven; I'm going to tell old Bill Shakespeare that I 
don't believe that he wrote all those plays that people said he did. 

Arrilla G. — Ah, but suppose he doesn't happen to be in heaven. 
Katie— Oh, well, you can tell him then. 

"A true friend," remarked May, "is a man that knows that you are no good and is able 
to forget it. 

Mr. Estes, passing the senior table in the dining room, addressed them: "Why do you 
eat so long, I think you are just putting on. 

Gertrude P. —No. sir; you're mistaken, y^e've putting in. 

Lucy H. P. (after singing)— What kind of a voice would you call mine? i 

Lucile M.— I should never call it; I'd let it sleep. 

Miss Lea, explaining the taste of pine apple, said: " 'Tis like the kisses of a lover. The 
more you get the more you want. ' ' 

Miss Mariah J., calling roll in Botany class, said: "If you are present don't say anything, 
but if you are not here, answer, 'absent.' " 

Lucy H. P. -Isn't Ruth T. on the ball team? 

Lucy Hall — Well, I heard she was to play the position as Suh. 

Miss Morris — I washed my hair today and a load is off my mind. 

Carrie J. — I saw D. W. down the street today and he was looking very patriotic. 

Gertrude P. — How is that?" 

Carrie— He had a red nose, a white tie and a blue eye. 

Mrs. Batson to Dixie— Well do you expect to spend a vacation? 
Dixie — Yes, I ought to. That's about all I have to spend. 

Mr. Johnson— That baby of mine will drive me mad; why, she cries all the time. 

Sophia S. — Well, all babies cry; why don't you sing her to sleep? 

Mr. J. — I have proposed that, but my wife says she'd rather hear the baby cry. 

Myra Y. (seriously) — Well, Miss Morris, I surely thought Caesar wrote this book before 
he died. 

Albert H. (pettishly) — You look as if you haven't animation enough to say Boo! to a goose. 
Miss Lea — Boo! 

Miss Morris— Of what class does mankind consist? 
Lucile M. — The superman, the middle man and oyily man. 



April 3^001*0 lag 



Place — Mississippi Woman's College— Characters — A crowd of "April Fools" — Act I — 
Scene I— Dormitory — Time— Night before the first of April. 

One of Puck's pals speaks; "Well girls guess you know what the "president" said about 
observing our annual all fool's day, but believe me if you all are in for it. I'm game to do any 
thing at anytime." 

A mischievous lassie bubbling over in gaiety; "surely, we must "mop up," but please etus 
be quiet, quick and sly in every "stunt" that we do." 

All Fools, in a joyous chorus; "Ay! Ay! Come, come, let us start." 

They did start, and took a mighty long time to end. 

Some of the heavy weight champions attempted to get "Mother" Batson out of their way, 
so all preparations might be completed, but all efforts, unsuccessful, she was permitted to re- 
main in peace, for a while. 

Time changes, to four o'clock next morning. 

A dauntless girl quietly murmuring to her chum;' "wake up Mutt, " shakingher vigorously, 
"arent you going to do what we said?" 

Mutt (sleepily); "Ye-e-s. wait a minute. 

With fearless courage they struggled laboriously with a strong never-breaking rope, tying 
"Mother" Batson, securely in her room, and in that, they certainly succeeded. 

Act II— Scene I — Same scene as in Act I. 'Tis a bright and beautiful April Fool's day! 

One of the girls on hearing a horrible, unharmonious clanging, passing up and down the 
halls; "wake upi crazy, I believe those Mexicans or Bulgarians one, are over here." 

Her roommate arousing; "Oh, no, don't you remember we hid the bell, and they just 
want us to get up." 

As the girls walked by the matron's door that morning, such nudging in each others side, 
and what exclamations were uttered, "I wonder — who did that." "Gee! but I bet she'll be 
mad." 

Mrs. Batson wasn't the only absent person from the breakfast table, but another was also 
deprived of her morning repast, 'cause you know she has a heavy suit of hair (?) and was un- 
able to locate its exact concealment. 

"For love of Mike, don't nail so heavily, don't you know Mrs. Batson is in her room and 
she can hear us," one of the "don't care" girlies said to another, who was diligently, fixing a 
bucket of pure water over each teacher's door. They were hung very unsafely. You can 
imagine the results, when those grave bodies opened their doors. 

After breakfast each girl was warned 7iot to go to school, but as the bell rang, join the 
line of truants, and march boldly away. 

The Faculty humbly watching the departure. 

The decision, as to where they would make their retreat, was soon pronounced to all, and 
what a jolly good time, each "April Fool" spent on the beautiful river. It would never do to 
mention the numerous and absurd "pranks," that were played that day by these wanderers. 

Note, the day ended lovely, not a soul was ofi'ended, "Mother" Batson was released from 
prison, Miss Lea found her hair, none of the teachers took a cold from the unexpected shower, 
and everybody was just as happy as they could be. 

Now don't you think the proper April Fool spirit prevailed? 

— C. F. J.

Oaves T/fiies of Oteps and 
//fakes J^un of Coo/c/n^,.. 

Here is a piece of modern kitchen furnishing that 
actually makes play of cooking and kitchen work. 

That lets you arrange your kitchen so conveniently 
and comfortably that you don't get tired, and have 
plenty of time for pleasure and to enjoy yourself with 
your family and friends. 

Instead of walking back and forth between pantry 
and cupboard and kitchen table collecting utensils and 
dishes and supplies, you have them all in one place 
within reach of the arm. 

The Hoosier Kitchen Cabinet combines pantry and 
cupboard with a beautiful aluminum topped table. 



This table is just the right height for you to sit on a comfortable stool while you work — no 
need for back-breaking standing. Women who have tried it say that this makes cooking easy. 

HOW $1.00 PUTS THE HOOSIER IN YOUR HOME 

This wonderful, handsome, sturdy Hoosier, fully equipped to save work and time and strength and therefore 
health and beauty, may be yours at once on payment of $1.00. 

Just join the Hoosier Club — the wonderful co-operative Club conducted for the benefitof Hoosier Owners under 
our direct supervision— $1.00 makes you a member. 

Every Hoosier agent, leading furniture merchant of your city will admit you to membership, and will deliver 
your Hoosier immediately. 

Then you pay $1.00 a week in dues for a few weeks and the cabinet is yours, a lifetime insurance against the 
excessive walking and standing that is so injurious to health and such a waste of time.
